    Hi everyone. I feel like the need for a little rant. Basically, my grandma was in the hospice for respite. They worked wonders for her, (she has terminal COPD) she was breathing easier, seemed brighter, had more colour in her cheeks - we were all so happy that she was so much better, and just elated that we would have more time with her. This week they rushed her into hospital with high potassium levels, which can cause cardiac arrest. We were told by the doctor this is relatively easy to do and once they found out why it raised it should be okay. But they have said they are going to try for a couple more days, and if it doesnt work they are going to withdraw treatment. I am devestated. We are really close, she is the centre of our whole family. I don't know what we are all going to do once shes gone. I feel so numb

    I really am struggling to have the brain space for sw right now. Im trying but we are at the hospital so late so we are mostly having takeaways when coming home. I know I should be more organised.

    Please send positive thoughts to her. Any prayers/positive vibes would be more appreciated than i could ever say. So sorry for rambling :( xxxxx

    aw, so sorry to hear this. I would not worry about your diet at the moment you have more emotional stuff to deal with. I know it is hard but if you try and think of happy memories and maybe put together a book of stuff as a memory for her. Also knowing that she has had a long life and that eventually when the time is right she we go peacefully with her family around her - which is probably the best way to go for a human. Lots of love and hugs.
    Take care of yourself, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family :) x

    SW is the least important thing in your life right now.

    You spend as much time with your Grandma as you can. It will be such a comfort to her to know you are there.

    hugs xxxxx
